The prevailing hypothesis is that life got started in the ocean, where hydrothermal vents provided just the right chemical reactions. But a new MIT study has found that ancient oceans probably didn't ha
By carefully applying blur to a portrait, you can make it look like it was shot with a shallow depth-of-field using a fast (and expensive) lens. Here’s a 12-minute tutorial by PiXimperfect that teaches the key to creating this faux blur in a realistic way.“We’ll learn some advanced controls for Iris Blur and Field Blur from Blur Gallery, and combine multiple filters to easily cr
